Overview

Under the Topology, a Location parameter is used for logical grouping of SEP sesam clients. Each client is always created within (and assigned to) a location, which can be defined as a group of clients and further specified as sub-locations. You can use locations to group your clients according to their OS, data type, different geographical location, etc.

Such grouping enables large organizations at different locations to be managed and represented as a group with separate, centrally-managed units (using a tree-like structure). Locations can be hierarchically organized – multiple sub-locations can be summarized under one location. In the example below we will create a new location HOME.

As of version 4.4.3 Grolar, SEP sesam allows you to configure permissons (ACLs) for a location (group of clients) or a specific client. For details, see Using Access Control Lists.

Procedure

  1. In the Main selection -> Components -> Topology, go to the content pane and click New location. Note that the location LOCAL is always created by default.
  2. In the New location window, enter the name of the location, for example HOME. By using the in field, you can create sub-locations within the existing location. Optionally, enter the description and other contact information.

  4. As of v. 4.4.3 Beefalo, you have to enter your administrator privileges in the new OS Access tab when configuring a location. You have to use DOMAIN\USER format for domain accounts or HOST\USER for local accounts. The specified credentials (user name and password) will be used for all clients within the location.
  5. Click OK. Your new location is displayed in the Topology content pane.
